       clipbrowse - Load a URL from the	clipboard into your browser.

       version 0.26

       # ...copy something # (You might	want to	do a `clipjoin`	if the URL
       text is messy) $	clipbrowse

       Remember	that many browsers will	usefully load things that don't	look
       like URL's. For example Firefox does a Google "I'm feeling lucky" with
       non-URLs.  This means you can have any text in your clipboard and

       It saves	a couple of seconds every time you run it.  Chrome and
       Firefox,	for examples, automatically create a new tab and loads the
       page when you invoke it from the	command	line.  Already we've saved a
       Ctrl+T and a Shift+Insert.  When	you consider the parallelizing (that
       your browser will be actively loading the page while you're Alt+Tabbing
       to it), you've squeaked out a little more.

       Maybe I'm just a	freak, but I like shaving out wasted time like that.

       The environment variable	$BROWSER will override the default launching
       command.	 If you	have a %s in the line, it will be replaced with	the
       url.  if	not, the url will be appended at the end.

       The default is `chromium-browser	"%s"` (Debian's	Google Chrome) If you
       still use Firefox, consider: `firefox -remote "openURL(%s,new-tab)"'`.
